Rebelling Against My Eating Routine

I eat the same thing every day. Every day. But today, I’m shaking it up. I’m taking a chance. I’m shucking my own system. If it’s true that you are what you eat, I’m reinventing myself today. See, the past month or so, I’ve been eating…

Breakfast: Two-egg omelette with one slice of cheese; apple cinnamon oatmeal with 1/2 cup milk.

Snack: A fist full of raw almonds.

Lunch: A tuna melt with slice of cheese on whole grain bread; cup of lowfat vanilla yogurt with low fat apple cinnamon granola.

Snack: Powerbar

Dinner: Lean Cuisine chicken ranch club flatbread sandwich.

Today, I plan on swapping my snacks. I’m going to try that Powerbar in the morning, raw almonds in the afternoon. This could be a decision that changes my life on a really, really small scale.

And frankly, I’m growing tired of the tuna melt. I’ve eaten a tuna melt at work every day for a month. I’m eating a Lean Cuisine check, spinach and ranch club sandwich because I answer to no one and I’m my own man. I’m ballsy enough to make these changes. And I just made this choice this morning. I’m a loose cannon.

I’ll report back on how this new dietary approach goes. Operation: Shrinkmygut has been a success thus far. And, I’m happy to report I’m winning the War on Pop. (Clean for 13 days, not counting a Diet Coke the other night at P.F. Chang’s.)

I’m hoping these changes have an even greater impact on me meeting my personal goals.

  1. Fantastic graphic choice…

    Also, good work on cutting the pop. You remember, I used to kick back a 2L of Mountain Dew everyday – last year I told myself I’d cut back, so I switched it up to DIET Mt. Dew……..but I’m still drinking a 2L almost everyday. Haha.

  2. Leaving your disturbingly monotonous diet alone for a minute, what do you have against almonds? I picture you taking out your finest serving bowl, pouring in a generous amount of almonds, then going into straight up UFC mode, slugging the almonds until an acceptable amount of nuts are ingrained into your knuckles.

    That’s what a fistful of knuckles is, right?

    I have been trying to cut back on soda for a while, too. There are just so many places that don’t really have anything else to drink and I feel like an ass asking for a cup for water sometimes.

    Keep up the good work.

    • Tom – I’m still rewarding myself with a Sugar Free Rock Star from time to time. Restaurants are the worst. You can see steam come out of a waitresses ears when you ask for water. It’s so shameful.
